Two weeks ago Kristin and I welcomed Tennessee Lynn into our lives. It was a long wait, but it was all worth it:
Trace lives in Durham, NC with their partner Kristin. They were joined by baby Tennessee Lynn in April 2012 and baby Hazel in May 2015.
Trace is not a talker. Trace also thinks it is a little weird to talk about himself in the third person.
"Quitter #8 is a quiet, elegant look at passing storms and coming sadness. In a lean and beautifully-written voice akin to Willa Cather (but all his own), Trace Ramsey shows us a tangled kind of life--deep-burrowed hurt, love and belief in (and need for) good creatures, a tinge of wildness in city blocks. A zine about depression and children and childhood and dreams, the eighth issue of Quitter (though brief) is one of the most substantial pieces of literary work in the Pioneers Press catalog. It's sweet, sad, good-hearted, and smart. We are honored to carry this zine." - Pioneers Press
Bread made from crickets is a survival food in many places, a staple in others and a disgusting concoction in the "civilized" world. The discussion presented here details how I jump in between each of those cultures, destroying certain pieces as needed.
This is also a discussion about starting a family, the do-it-yourself lifestyle, being an anarchist and how the interactions I engage in promote community, friendship and mutual aid.
